    I'm sure that your teacher did refer to The Sun.
    I'm equally sure that they are just demonstrating their personal prejudices.
    Approx two thirds of The Sun's readership is ABC1C2.
    You read the sun don't you?

    The actual news isn't really their main focus, tabloids and gossip is most important to them.

    I assumed people read it for the celeb gossip inside. I didn't think it reported much news. Is it not also one of the cheapest papers? Another reason why people may buy it.

    The Sun appeals to (mainly) unintelligent people, and men who want to see naked women in a newspaper (also unintelligent).
    What is unintelligent about admiring the female form?

    Why are you so scared of the beauty in the world?

    Sorry, I'm American, so didn't know that. I remember lots of coverage in the US was given to the News of the World scandal.

    News of the World and The Sun are both owned by Rupert Murdoch. Basically all of his companies hack phones.
